CB - FA - OUT
Former Tennessee Titans CB Jonathan Joseph has officially announced his retirement from the NFL after 15 years.
The two-time Pro Bowler officially announced his retirement from his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon after being drafted by the Bengals as the 24th overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft. Joseph spent the majority of his 15-year career with the Cincinnati Bengals and Houston Texans, splitting time between Arizona and Tennesse during his final season in 2020, recording 29 tackles, five pass deflections, two TFLs, and an interception across seven games for the Titans.
The Titans released CB Johnathan Joseph.
Jackson had a brutal Week 8 game against Joe Burrow and the Bengals, which likely triggered this move by Tennessee.
Dianna Russini of ESPN reports Johnathan Joseph is signing a one-year contract with the Titans.
The 36-year-old reunites with Mike Vrabel in what will likely be a mentoring role. Joseph should still see snaps on the field on a rotational basis but the days of him being a full-time starter appear to be over. Pro Football Focus rated him as the leagues' 83rd best cornerback in 2019 (out of 128 qualifiers).
Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph (neck) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice after being limited Tuesday.
Joseph sat out Week 17 due to a neck injury but appears on track to play in Saturday’s playoff game against the Colts. Defensive end J.J. Watt (elbow/knee) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) remained limited while safety Mike Tyson was a non-participant before being placed on IR.
Texans cornerback Jonathan Joseph left Thursday night’s win over the Dolphins with an ankle injury.
Joseph suffered the injury in the first-quarter when teammate Jadeveon Clowney rolled into his legs while making a tackle. He was unable to return. The hope is the injury isn’t too serious especially considering the Texans are already without cornerbacks Kevin Johnson, Aaron Colvin, Kayvon Webster, and Shareece Wright.
